Want this with different stones? Get in touch for a quote. I hand-fabricate all of my rings by myself, in my studio, so any combination of stones is possible.
In this listing, you can select 14k or 18k rose, yellow, or white gold, or platinum. Please note that I do not work in plated nor newly-mined metals- your ring will be built in solid gold or platinum, which has been recycled at the smelting level.
SHIPPING and INSURANCE- PLEASE READ: Is by the quickest method I can use to get your rings to you. This is two business day (to most locations, but some restrictions apply) in the USA, and approximately 3-5 business days outside of Canada and the USA. It includes a tracking number. Please note- this method carries only $100 in insurance. As the rings are moving with a reputable courier and must be signed for on your end, they are very well-protected. However, on the very rare and outside chance that they should become lost or damaged in the mail, I cannot cover the cost unless you have chosen to upgrade to full insurance. If you wish to do so, please get in touch for an estimate on this insurance. It is no longer possible to send fully-insured packages by two business day (to most locations, but some restrictions apply) courier, as they will only offer a maximum of $1000 on jewelry shipments.
Please also note that I am not authorized to collect your county's import fees, taxes, levies, etc. This listing is for the purchase price of the ring and shipping costs- not importation fees. Please be aware of what these fees may be on your end, as I am unable to advise nor estimate on this subject.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
I am always open to hearing your design ideas. Please contact me through the shop, or at email@example.com to discuss design possibilities.
If you are unsure of your ring size, the best way to be sized accurately is by visiting two commercial jewelers. Please ensure they size you using their thin sizing tools- not the wide band sizing tools, nor by having you try on rings from their display.
If any questions arise around being properly sized, I am always happy to help- contact me through the shop, or at firstname.lastname@example.org
I don’t provide a gift wrapping service. Rings and earrings ship in jewelry boxes that are hot foil stamped with the Specimental logo.
If the person for whom you are purchasing the piece shares your address, please be aware of the following: International export law dictates that the detailed contents of packages, and their value, be clearly marked on the outside of the package. This means that if they see the package before you do, they can easily tell what they are being gifted with.
Need secrecy for this delivery? The very best option is to have your package held for you at your closest Fed Ex store- if you are unsure of its location, I'm happy to help.
Our hands are busy objects, and any ring worn on a finger can become accidentally damaged. All rings need regular maintenance. Make sure you are buying your raw diamond ring from a jeweler with the knowledge and experience needed to ensure your stone stays put. Ask them about their warranty and their repair/upkeep policy. Look at how frequently they work with raw diamonds, and assess whether they have the technical experience to create a ring that will last your lifetime.
I stand behind each piece of jewellery I make. If something goes wrong with your ring, at any time- you slam your finger in a drawer and crush the band, you break a prong, you smash and crack your stone- you can count on me to support you with the repair.
My gold is all recycled- the metal plant I purchase it from has been in business for over 100 years. They smelt their metals to the highest environmental standards, to cause the least impact on the environment. They do not deal with newly mined metals, as these metals cause much greater destruction to the environment.
There is no visible difference between recycled metals and newly-mined metals. There is also no difference as far as the karat of the metals go- 18k recycled gold is exactly the same in constitution as 18k newly mined gold. The vast majority of my clients prefer their metals recycled, as environmental impact is of concern when choosing the perfect piece of jewelry.
I can use your heirloom stones in a new design. The stones must be pulled from their settings and checked for stability by a professional jeweler prior to shipping them to me. I cannot recycle your gold. I am not set up to smelt gold in the studio, so am not able to melt down your old gold pieces for you.
My current production times are listed in my shop announcement. If you need something more quickly, please get in touch via the shop, or at email@example.com
Depending upon my work and family schedule, I am happy to accommodate your rush orders. There is no additional charge for a rush order. However, please do get in touch prior to ordering to discuss your deadline with me.
Yes! All of my pieces are completely hand fabricated in the studio by me, from raw materials. I am able to create any of my designs with any stone, in any composition. In short, you can have your ring absolutely any way you like it. Contact me through the shop, or via firstname.lastname@example.org to get the discussion around your perfect piece of jewelry started.
A raw diamond is an exceptionally difficult stone to set properly. Their unique shape means that a custom setting needs to be fabricated for each and every stone. The way in which the setting is closed around the diamond must be approached in a very particular fashion.
I began setting these stones into my rings in 2009, when only a small handful of jewelers were working with this type of stone. As the appeal of raw diamonds has exploded, countless numbers of jewelers are now incorporating them into their designs. I have set thousands of raw diamonds into my pieces since then.
